Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka could still be open to a move away from the German side with several Premier League clubs being linked with the Swiss international.
Arsenal leads the race for the player’s signature all through the transfer window but now they have been joined by Liverpool who are still looking for a defensive midfield to boss the midfield for the reds since the departure of Steven Gerrard in the summer.
Xhaka joined Borussia Monchengladbach from FC Basel in 2012 and has been an integral member of the squad; he is also being tracked by German Champions; Bayern Munich as a replacement for the ageing Xabi Alonso and the already departed Bastian Schweinsteiger, who left in the summer to join English Premier League giants Manchester United.
Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl sees Granit Xhaka as a valuable asset to the club and it would take a sizeable bid for the club to cash in on the high rated midfielder.
The Gunners interest for the Swiss super star may have cooled off since the £7.3 Million capture of Mohamed Elneny and the plan move to sign Victor Wanyama from Southampton in the summer; clearing the way for Liverpool and Bayern Munich to slug it out for the players signature.
